Indian-origin man in Malaysia shot dead

Singapore, May 11 (IANS) An Indian-origin man was shot dead in Alor Setar, the capital of the Malaysian state of Kedah.

M. Nagenthiran, 30, was shot three times Friday on the top floor of a five-storey apartment in the Taman Setia Jaya area of the city, local media reported. He was a car repossessor.

His wife G. Paramewary, who was sleeping with their two children, said she woke up in the early hours Friday when she heard a knock on the door of their apartment.

“I opened the door to find a policeman standing outside. He told me that my husband was dead,” The Malaysian Star newspaper quoted her as saying.

“I rushed out and found him lying in a pool of blood only a few metres from our unit,” she said.

A neighbour, who spotted Nagenthiran’s body, had alerted the police.

The family had shifted to the new apartment six months ago.
